Final preparations are under way for the start of the annual Loch Long Week at Cove Sailing Club.

The week of events celebrating the historic Loch Long One Design class gets under way on Sunday, July 24, and is expected to see a good number of visiting boats coming to the Rosneath peninsula from Aldeburgh Yacht Club in Suffolk, where most of the Loch Long fleet is based and which alternates with Cove in hosting the annual event.

This year's regatta is the 85th anniversary of Loch Long Week and also takes place during the Cove club's 50th anniversary year.

Cove Sailing Club members are being asked to keep the slipway clear of dinghies and trailers until Sunday, July 31 to allow for the movement of boats taking part in the regatta.

In a post on the club's Facebook page, vice-commodore John McNeilage said: "You are still able to launch your boat but if I could ask that dinghies and trailers are kept away from the slipway to allow for clear access.

"Please be mindful that the car park will be busier than usual with visiting cars and trailers.

"Here's to a successful week with good wind for the sailors. Remember the club will be open for people to support from the shore."
